You don’t have to wait until Thanksgiving Day to find reason to give thanks. Gratefulness is one of the five essential spiritual qualities. Opportunities arrive every day. Here are 5 songs to inspire you to share your gratitude in this installment in an occasional series of hand-picked playlists.
1. Ryan Corn, “Wonderful Things”
Here’s to astonishing, amazing growth and unfoldment. “My heart’s been harder than rocks and my mind’s been darker than dark, but you’ve done wonderful things to change me.”
2. David Gray, “The Incredible”
We can also be thankful in advance for what is on the way. The incredible is approaching.
3. Sam Smith, “Lay Me Down (Acoustic)”
Sometimes it takes losing someone close to appreciate what we had. Give thanks for second chances.
4. MercyMe, “Dear Younger Me”
Another take on the gift of hindsight. “Every moment brings you closer to who you are meant to be…”
5. Christian Gregory, “Count On You”
Don’t take your best friends for granted. They’ve got your back. And they can count on you too.
